Elitecore Technologies has unveiled its improved Wi-Fi Service Management Platform (SMP) for supporting LTE/Wi-Fi interworking.
The company said the new Wi-Fi SMP enables global telecom operators to deploy customer-centric next-generation services in a heterogeneous 4G-LTE network.
The new features include Evolved AAA which addresses authentication challenges of subscribers in LTE supporting Diameter-based EAP authentication along with Radius based authentication for Radius supportive networks like Wi-Fi.
The Evolved AAA feature supports LTE Wi-Fi interworking by providing the Wx interface support for HSS authentication over LTE network for additional authentication parameters based on subscriber profile, authorization information update, ePDG initiated session termination and S2b interface support towards PGW. The Evolved AAA helps efficient communication on LTE network to quickly deliver customization and solve interoperability challenges, Elitecore said.
Elitecore is showcasing the enhanced Wi-Fi SMP at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week.
RAD is exhibiting a series of solutions which it promises will allow telcos to roll out new services faster, smarter and with a better return on investment.
These include RAD’s Distributed Network Functions Virtualization (D-NFV) solution, which integrates a Layer2/Layer3 FPGA-based NID and compute infrastructure with a standard x86 server.
The ETX-2, a small form-factor demarcation and performance monitoring device, provides traffic engineering and end-to-end performance monitoring for both Layer 2 (Y.1731) and Layer 3 (TWAMP) services.
MiNID is RAD’s unique SFP sleeve. Equipped with comprehensive NID capabilities, it immediately interworks with any standard SFP inserted into it, instantly empowering existing networks, such as small cells, routers and DSLAMs, with carrier ethernet capability.
RAD will be showcasing its service assured mobile demarcation solution, which features a built in GPS receiver and highly accurate IEEE1588 Grandmaster timing and synchronization management. By situating accurate timing at the last aggregation point in LTE and LTE Advanced (LTE-A) networks, RAD aims to minimize hop-by-hop upgrade investments and free operators from the complex and expensive burden of having to bring GPS to every tower and small cell.
